A Man’s Inner Strength is his Beauty

A man’s inner strength is what makes him beautiful and gives him the ability to believe in himself. This morning I was reminded of this skill and that it’s what attracts the good things in my life. My connection to the land and the people around me is very real and the power of that spirit manifests itself in many ways. It’s easy to get lost or wind up in the rut but that’s the purpose for trials and tribulations, because in the long run those struggles make us more powerful. Someday, when I look back at this picture, I want to remember what I looked like in my younger years. It will also serve as a reminder about where I’m going…

Marketing My Sunday Shoes

my_sunday_shoes2

In a faithful bid to transform my life goals and career I’m switching from a nature-loving wilderness guide to a car salesman. It’s quite the gut-wrenching experience but it has been met with many blessings. One of them, is the ability to stay home and have a social life and more opportunities for dating the opposite sex. So the good nature that made me a tour guide will be used in a more stationary and structured environment. The fact is, I love people and I think I can handle this. During this transition, I’m learning how to market and brand myself. It’s important to succeed in life, make friends, love people, and fight for the American Dream.

Self Portrait in Vegas

This is a self-portrait of Nate at the Imperial Palace on the Las Vegas Strip. Since I really hate Vegas, I may as well look for the silver lining by taking a few extended exposures. This is me contemplating my life & hoping for better dreams to come true… Also, I dropped my precious 20mm lens on the ground at Bryce Canyon today! That was a trip.

My Grandfather the Prospector

My Grandfather the Prospector
It’s like he’s one of those forgotten characters from the past. This man has spent his entire life in the hills, sometimes for weeks, alone. He is a storyteller full of vision and insight. If you sit next to him you will learn about the mysteries of the wild and the strange things that lurk on the edges of civilization.
